“Fuck him, unfulfilled” with those phrases and more. Former US President Donald Trump criticized his “friend”, the former Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, but the latter did not delay in responding.
He issued a statement yesterday evening, stressing that he greatly appreciates Trump’s support for Israel, and his contribution to maintaining its security.
He also stressed that he is also aware of the importance of the strong alliance between Tel Aviv and Washington, so it was important for him to congratulate the next president, referring to Joe Biden’s congratulations in January 2021 on his victory in the presidential elections, which angered Trump.
The former master of the White House launched a scathing attack on his friend “Bibi”, as he calls him, during interviews conducted by an Israeli journalist who is preparing two books about his presidential era.
In excerpts from what Trump said during those interviews, Netanyahu accused him of being unfulfilled and of making a grave mistake.
He also insulted and insulted him, according to what the “Axios” website reported, saying, “Fuck him.”
He also added: “I appreciate loyalty, and I have done a lot for him, but he has not reciprocated me.”
As for the reasons for this anger, which turned an old friendship into a bitter enmity, it seems that it stemmed from a video in which Netanyahu appeared congratulating Biden. The former US president only commented on the matter, saying: “He could have waited, but he was the first to congratulate.”
It is reported that Netanyahu congratulated Biden in a tweet more than 12 hours after his victory in the elections, and after most other world leaders.
However, he did not mention in his tweet at the time to Biden as president-elect, as he followed it directly with a post praising Trump.
But it seems that what really bothered the former US president was the video clip that Netanyahu published on January 20, 2021, that is, the day Biden was inaugurated, in which the former prime minister said at the time that they had a “close personal friendship that goes back many decades.”
